A Spring Fling on a Fall Day

One Saturday afternoon, this past spring on one of my emotional shopping sprees, I walked in Bloomingdale's, spotted a melon chiffon sleeveless dress, found my size, grabbed it, tried it on, and checked out with a few other pieces.

Spring and summer came, left and has been replaced with fall and I have yet to wear this BCBGeneration dress.

Yesterday morning I woke up with a wardrobe challenge. I ran to my closet, pulled this bright melon dress out and dared myself to wear it. Granted it's not quite fall appropriate, but in Misha's closet almost anything goes, within reason of course. So with that said, here's what I paired with my spring fling.
I knew this would require some layering and fall staples to pull it off.

I decided to pair the girlie dress with my favorite denim shirt. This shirt is super comfy and would give my dress a more casual vibe for the office.

Since the denim shirt is from the men’s department the fit is a bit loose, so I chose my favorite brown belt to stay within the casual denim vibe. The belt also allowed me to retain a feminine silhouette by cinching the waist.

I added brown heather sweater tights with a pair of dark tan lace-up booties to keep the look fall appropriate.

Rather than a jacket, I choose an ultra chunky sweater as my outerwear option.

Here’s the final look.
So with a few of my fall staples I was able to have a spring fling during a fall day. What do you we think?

I liked it!

I absolutely love it!! That color is a great antidote to all the subdued browns and greys of the season.
